Breakside Brewery is excited to announce the release of Breakside’s newest seasonal sensation, Barberhop Quartet Double IPA. The beer will debut this coming Tuesday, February 19th from 6-9pm at Southeast Portland beer bar NWIPA, located at 6350 SE Foster Rd, Portland, OR.
Barberhop Quartet is the inspiration of Breakside’s Senior Brewer, Sam Barber and credit for the name goes to Breakside’s good friend Angelo DeIeso of Brewpublic.com. Designed to mimic the IPAs of central California, this beer is light in color, dank and delicious. Upon first tasting the beer, Breakside’s Director of Brewing Operations, Jacob Leonard exclaimed, “Finally, proof that God does exist!” Opting for a different flavor profile than Breakside’s other hop bombs, Sam used four a quartet of American hops: Columbus, Amarillo, Citra and Cascade. Assistant Brewer Keith Vandervort added, “This beer is so hop forward, it was as though Shawn Kelso came in and brewed here. The hop fridge was totally cleaned out. It made doing inventory super easy that week.” Though Breakside’s lab doesn’t isn’t equipped for mass photospectrometry, the brewers are quite sure that this Double IPA clocks in at 8.5% and 170 IBUs.
Host bar NWIPA specializes in offering the tastiest hoppy beers around and serves delicious sandwiches and snacks: thus it is the perfect place to celebrate a beer such as Barberhop Quartet! In addition to Barberhop Quartet, this event will feature a number of Breakside beers, including Breakside IPA, Dry Stout, Aztec Ale, Woodlawn Pale Ale and Pilsner. Sam and the other Breakside brewers will be on hand to discuss the beer, raffle off some Breakside swag, and share some good beers.
